Description
This volume contains collected papers on medieval England’s names and naming patterns -- mostly forenames or Christian names, but with some attention to family names. According to Rosenthal, there are three lines of assault upon the culture and practice by way of analysis of names and naming: micro-social or family dynamic, village life and limited name stock that confronts us when we tally the range of names that served the bulk of the population.
